How to raise a golden scholar.

The Golden Scholars program is an admissions pathway for select first-generation students from under-represented backgrounds. Students selected to be Golden Scholars will participate in an intensive six-week residential summer summer bridge program that offers academic preparation, individualized advising, and personal attention from faculty, staff, and peers. Students in the program will have the opportunity to sharpen their academic skills and develop a support network of students, faculty, and staff by becoming familiar with the FIU community and its many resources.

 

Non-Traditional Education – Part Two

Boosting Your Value Without Traditional Education – THE LIBRARY  

Your public library is a treasure trove of free information. Don’t overlook the following tremendous learning opportunities offered by your local library:

  1. Current periodicals (magazines, regularly published journals, newspapers). If you were to subscribe to these, they could cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in subscription fees. Yet, at the library they’re free so take advantage of them!
  • Some of these professional periodicals – for instance, internationally acclaimed magazines for meeting planners, graphic designers, writers or life coaches – offer some of the best and most current information on best practices, new procedures, business management models, and more.
  1. Books in your field. As you delve into the topic of your choice, you’ll surely find books that offer excellent information. Purchasing every item on your book list could cost you hundreds of dollars, so make good use of your local library.
  • Not every book on your book list will be one that you’ll want to keep, instead, sign out the book, make notes of relevant information, and return the book when you’re done. That could be one less book gathering dust on your shelves.
  • Save your money for books that you’ll use frequently as reference.
  1. Professional advice. Your local library is staffed with professionals who have a wealth of knowledge about reference materials, local organizations and services that may be of interest and relevance to your learning needs.
  • Bring your queries and concerns about resources, topics, and learning options to your librarian. If your library is well staffed, you’ll end up saving yourself hours of searching and you may even pick up a few good shortcuts as well!
  1. A varied learning environment. Even though you may be choosing to educate yourself independently, that doesn’t mean that you should keep yourself sequestered in your home. Your tax dollars pay for your local, cozy library – so enjoy it!

Survey Results- Hiring Managers are Rejecting Resumes without Covid-19 Status

It may seem like a minor detail, but vaccination status is an extremely important factor in the hiring process. One third of all U.S.-based resume recipients will not even read your document if it’s missing this information – so make sure you put down ” vaccinated” or they might just bin your application! You have been warned.

A whopping 63% admit that having proof on paper enhances their confidence with whom to select for future projects as well; next time someone asks ‘Do I need vaccine papers?’ simply say yes because there are no excuses nowadays when looking after yourself first means everything. 77% of hiring managers at companies with a mandatory vaccination policy prefer if applicants include their vaccination status on the resume.

A recent survey by ResumeBuilder.com, hiring managers in the computer and information technology industry found that vaccine status is critical to them. In fact, 78% of these employers prefer candidates who disclose their vaccination standing for this job field! Other career fields screening resumes screen out those without compliance too: food service, hospitality sector, and retail.

“It’s not surprising that some organizations will require employees to get vaccinated,” says Carolyn Kleinman, career coach and professional resume writer. “Workers in the healthcare industry typically work onsite so it makes sense for employers want preventative measures against COVID-19.”

When it comes to hiring, companies are more likely to hire individuals who have been inoculated. Sixty-nine percent of Hiring Managers say they will make a job offer based on vaccination status and 42% want vaccinated employees in their workplace!
